Listen to our “Happy 1st Birthday” Episode Here:
Because the Ivory Tower Boiler Room team reflects on listening back to our first ever episode, make sure to listen to that episode first before tuning into today’s podcast release. We don’t want to spoil anything for you (it’d be like eating your cake before having your pizza at the birthday party)!
And don’t forget to listen to some of the older podcast episodes we reference throughout the new episode:
“Growing Up in a Hamlet” (discussion with Dr. Bente Videbaek) ,
Originally released October 29, 2020
“Grad School Interrupted: A Discussion of Mental Health in the University,”
Part 1, Originally released April 1, 2020

“Two Writers Are Better Than One”:

(or as Andrew likes to call her “Charlotte”) Klein

And take a look at some of the writers from our community who get a shout-out during the episode:
We talk about our own weekly series The Big Think–each Monday one of us shares our thoughts on something related to the theme for the month.
We mention our friend and contributor Tiffany Sowa, who has been a big part of the Ivory Tower Boiler Room‘s work.
We also talk about Dr. Karen Kelsky, whose work can be found at The Professor Is In: “We are offering help with your job search and post-ac transition, and reducing rates across the board to be accessible to as many as possible.” Andrew and Adam will be interviewing Dr. Karen Kelsky and Kel Weinhold about their “Professor Is In” podcast and “Professor Is Out” Facebook group. Meanwhile, you can listen to their podcast.
We want to thank all of our listeners, guests and contributors who have helped make this first year happen. We appreciate you and how you inspire us to keep bringing you great interviews, incredible guests, and amazing writing. Thank you for your support and here’s to an even better second year!
